Anyone know if this is a problem? I used to have very strong thermal shifts. I'd have great EWCM and then my temp would spike up .4 or .5 degrees and stay elevated for 13 days or so. That was when I had my 2 kids. For the last year and a half, we've been ttc and no baby. We have had 2 early miscarriages too. My charts are definitely messier - temps going up and down a lot after ovulation and testing showed I do have low and unstable levels of progesterone. So I'm taking prometrium and when on it, my temps do stay up. But, I'm getting this very slow rise after ovulation in my temps. The transition is just weak - even my CM will be several days of a combination of fertile EWCM and less fertile, drying up mucus and that coincides with my slower temp rise. My temp will go up .2 and then another .1 or so and it takes about 3 -4 days to get up the a .4 rise, whereas before it only took a day. I've tried to find stuff online but not finding much. Some says it's just a variation of normal. Others say it indicates a progesterone issue, that it just takes your body longer to release progesterone. Others say it's a sign of "weak ovulation" that everything in the system isn't working how it should. That maybe the egg isn't the best quality or that it's not really "bursting" from the follicle as it should but being slowly released or that the LH surge isn't strong enough. I'm just trying to see if there is something there that could explain the issues with getting and staying pregnant. I have an appointment with my OB in August but I'd like to see if I can get more tests done before I see him or at least go in with some questions about what may or may not be happening based on this slow rise/transition. Anyone know anything? Thanks!
